WHO — The Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre (CACPC) 

WHAT — During the month of May, the Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre is offering a series of FREE online crime prevention presentations. 

Alberta’s Crime Prevention Week is May 10 to May 16, 2020. The Government of Alberta dedicates this week to crime prevention because they believe all Albertans deserve to feel safe in their communities. Through programs, grants and services, the Crime Prevention and Restorative Justice Unit engages local communities to take part in reducing crime risk and promoting positive behaviour. 

Normally, during the month of May, CACPC holds our Touch-A-Truck event, a public education event, and a Graffiti Clean event in the downtown. However, due to COVID-19, those community activities have been cancelled. 

However, we are offering crime prevention presentations via Zoom beginning May 12th. Topics will include: 

  • Crime Prevention for Your Home 
  • Crime Prevention for Your Condo 
  • Removing & Reporting Graffiti 
  • Crime Prevention for Your Business 
  • CACPC & Wise Owls: Fraud & Scams for Seniors 
  • Basic Personal Safety Tips. 

Each presentation is approximately 45 – 60 minutes in length and is offered twice daily. 

WHERE  To register, please visit our website (, our Facebook page, or EventBrite. You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting link to join the presentations. 

WHEN — May 12-14, (Tuesday – Thursday) and May 19-21 (Tuesday – Thursday); 10:00 AM or 2:00 PM. 

WHY — The mission of the Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre is to engage, educate and empower residents to increase community safety.

Carnival Cinemas = movie theatre and virtual reality complex open again!

Published on

After 3 months of cinematic silence, digital projects will again come to life at Carnival Cinemas on Friday night.
“It has been a tough 3 months,” said theatre owner Bill Ramji. “This weekend, we come back to life!”
Movie goers can choose from Trolls World Tour, Sonic the Hedgehog, I Still Believe and the classic 1970s
film E.T.
Carnival Cinemas has kept prices steady at $5 and still offers the same snack bar and games arcade center in addition to Ctrl V, their virtual reality entertainment complex.

“We will still offer the same services as before, for meetings, birthday parties, and other rentals to serve our customers,” said Ramji. “We are ready to be central Red Deer’s entertainment hub.”
Over the last weeks, the Carnival parking lot has been home to food trucks, a move which was initiated last year.
“Having food trucks in our lot gives us good visibility,” added Ramji. “Last year we even had a small collectors market day for local comic book and card collectors.”
Ramji noted that movie goers can go online at to view their current film slate and view online trailers.
